June/July 2011 10 On July 1–3, Bear Paw Keepsakes gives a nod to the best of local native art while celebrating the diversity of native tribes. The Woodland Indian Art Show and Market (WIASM), splices generations from a variety of tribes to showcase both contemporary and traditional styles and techniques. “This is different from Southwest art shows people are used to,” says Loretta Webster, coordinator for the WIASM. “It was started in order to focus on the woodland art, which is more a part of Northern U.S., Canadian and Alaskan Indian culture.” A nonprofit organization sponsored by the Oneida Nation Arts Program, the Oneida Tribe and the Wisconsin Arts Board, the volunteer-run, juried art show is in its fourth year. Most participating artists are from the Midwest and many – like watercolorist Dawn Darkmountain – are from the Oneida tribe. “Since I am Oneida, my work is inspired by the Oneida/Iroquois culture,” says Darkmountain, who has participated in the show since its inception. “It is especially meaningful to me to be able to exhibit my work in Oneida during our largest cultural festival of the year.” The show is broken down into three categories: 2-dimensional art, 3- dimensional art and functional items. The categories are then split into traditional and contemporary. In addition to the prizes awarded by the jury, attendees also vote for the Community Choice Award winner. The majority of the art is inspired by traditional floral motifs and depictions of stories of woodland tribes, as well as beadwork and wampun belts and beads, which are unique to Iroquois tribe. “Some of the best work from Indian artists is going to be here,” Webster says. “It’s a great opportunity if you’re interested in Indian art. It’s small but you can visit and talk with a variety of artists.” The WIASM takes place at the Norbert Hill Center the same weekend as the Oneida Pow-wow, a popular event that draws nearly 5,000 people. According to Webster, what keeps the show growing is the artists themselves. Over the last four years, patrons have come back to collect their favorite artists’ pieces, and will surely continue to do so. 23 | Keith Abler Variety of island & rock music.
